Welcome Back! [Jun. 20th, 2007|12:43 am]

So, after years of not even bothering with LiveJournal, here I am. My oh my, how things have changed. Since the last time I posted an entry here, I moved to Las Vegas, and back to California. I also, more recently, was in a motorcycle accident! That was no fun. Ever since, I've been on the shelf with a broken arm, and fractured femur.

Ever since then, I haven't really had too much to say, however, it is nice to get it down and out. Well, maybe I'll start posting more crap in this thing...I really don't have anything to do, I still can't walk, and spend the majority of my time online anyways. So, I'll catch you later.

Disturbingly Decent Day [Dec. 10th, 2005|12:11 am]

Today didn't turn out all too bad, except for the fact that I'm pretty close to broke. I've been living with no paycheck for about 3 weeks now. I've made my money last that long. I only had about $200 to begin with. I've got about $50 left. I put $30 in my tank earlier, and it filled it up, and I drove all the way home, and I still have a full tank. It took $30 because I use 91. I have to, because my engine is turbo'd. If I put anything less that 91, my turbo will blow out.

Other than my money issues, life isn't all too bad. I have some of the greatest friends a guy could ask for, I have an awesome family that loves me...I think that I'm going to be taking on more responsibilities soon at my day job. I had to drive out to meet an attorney while our computer tech was on vacation, and it went exceptionally well. So, I was told to buy some nicer dress clothes, that I would be visiting attorneys more often. So, hopefully, a rising weekly paycheck is in order.

I really enjoy going to the attorney's offices...It's like, I've been talking to these people on the phone for such a long time, and I've never actually laid eyes on them. So, I get to go there, and the are already so comfortable with me, so everything goes so smoothly. For most people, talking in person is so much harder than to talk on the phone. Most people have no problem on the phone...Well, I'm not like that. I'm good on the phone, but better in person. Talking in person helps me get my point across a lot easier. I have the visual advantage. I am a man of many gestures that work to my advantage to help accentuate my verbal abilities.

So, I'm having to catch another job at Domino's Pizza for the extra cash until I can make more at my day job. I really don't want to, just because it will use up any spare time that I may have. Time is very precious to me, and I don't have a lot of it now-a-days. I'm beginning to regret financing my car. I mean, granted, it's going to look GREAT on my credit in the next 2 years. The reason I even thought of doing this is for my future. Soon, I will get a credit card, and begin to continue making my credit better. In the time it takes to pay off my car, I will be saving money, and building credit. After a few years, I plan on putting a nice down payment on a home, and gathering up a couple of friends to move in with me :D

So, I'm doing my best to view the glass as half full. Life isn't all that bad...As long as that's the way you make it out. I'm just happy that I'm able to share this life with the ones I love! Well, I'll cease from boring you to death. I will talk to you guys and gals later.

Unconsciously Sober [Dec. 9th, 2005|12:59 pm]

Well, it's been quite a long time since I've actually taken the time to write in my LiveJournal...Plus, I don't have very many friends on here. lol. I think I have, like, 3. Argh, whatever. Life, since the last time I was on LJ, has changed dramatically! I have 2 jobs, I have a car payment triple the insurance rate I used to have--Not due to my driving habbits, but due to the type of sports car I have :/

I'm finding it hard to keep my head above water as of late. I don't know if it's because I can't, or because I don't want to. I mean, I can afford everything, it's just getting everything started is hard. I have to switch over my insurance wth all my transfer fees, and everything...I can't afford it. It's a long story that ends with me with my pockets hanging out, and a confused look on my face.

If I can get started, and have everything coming in on a proper schedule, I can afford the lifestyle I choose to live. I don't buy much of anything like I used to. I rarely eat out anymroe. I grab a $1 breakfast burrito fomr a Mexican shack every so often, but that' no biggie. I pay my bills, and I pay for my gas, and the rest is disposable income...It just doesn't seem like it's enough though. I want to go back to school, but I don't have the time or the money.

I know I'm going back to school for sure, that's not a question...It's a bold statement. I want to have at least some knowledge of what I want to do in this life, instead of skating by snatching up the small oppertunities. The small ones aren't taking me anywhere. It's the big fish I'm waiting for, but maybe I'm waiting in vein...I need to go and MAKE my big oppertunity, and that I will do! 10 years from now, I see myself owning my own home, and my own business. Having the ability to take all the time off that I need, because my company is run by people under me. I don't want to be a dick of a boss, but I want to be the guy behind the scenes doing all the work neccessary to keep the business running.

I see myself with a wife, and kids, and, hopefully, sometime after that, grandkids. I want to grow old, and leave behind a legacy that will be remembered by all. I don't want to be just a smudge on the window of life anymore. I want to make a differnce in the lives of others, and all. I always have, and someday, I will. Well, anywho, life sucks until you're able to take advantage of it, and I'm good at taking advantage, and when I see it's the right time, that's exactly what I'll do.
